Preparation for landing | e.g. flight: Boeing 737-800 Flight Simulator X Guide

If the GPS mode is still active (NAV/GPS switch turned to GPS and VOR LOC button depressed), we have to deactivate it by switching NAV/GPS to NAV (upwards) and pressing the HDG SEL button. Use the HDG SEL knob to set heading 345. We also need to set the speed holding mode from Mach to IAS and set speed of 300 knots.

Now we can pause the game for a while and enter the map. Using the map cursors, we pan it and zoom in on ESMS airport. When the runway is visible, click it. The information window that pops up contains information on runway 17 heading (171 degrees) and ILS frequency (111.90 MHz).

Now as we know the required data, we can set it in our aircraft. The runway heading is set in Course window of the autopilot and the ILS frequency (111.90) is set in the radio panel in NAV1 section (STBY field, then click the button between the freq displays to make it active).

From that moment on, each flight on that route may be different. In our case we have received further descent instructions (up to 2500 ft) and heading changes.

We should also remember about systematic speed reduction to fly slower than 250 knots below 10000 feet and about switching on the landing lights below that altitude.
